9780062068538: One Good Earl Deserves a Lover: The Second Rule of Scoundrels (Rules of Scoundrels)

Lady Philippa Marbury is . . . odd

The brilliant, bespectacled daughter of a double marquess cares more for books than balls, for science than the season, and for laboratories than love. She's looking forward to marrying her simple fiancÚ and living out her days quietly with her dogs and her scientific experiments. But before that, Pippa has two weeks to experience all the rest—fourteen days to research the exciting parts of life. It's not much time, and to do it right she needs a guide familiar with London's darker corners.

She needs . . . a Scoundrel

She needs Cross, the clever, controlled partner in London's most exclusive gaming hell, with a carefully crafted reputation for wickedness. But reputations often hide the darkest secrets, and when the unconventional Pippa boldly propositions him, seeking science without emotion, she threatens all he works to protect. He is tempted to give Pippa precisely what she wants . . . but the scoundrel is more than he seems, and it will take every ounce of his willpower to resist giving the lady more than she ever imagined.

From the Author:

I cannot wait for you to see Cross & Pippa's story unfold-and I've saved one nugget of information for here, on my own blog, to thank you for coming over and joining me this week!

Here's the thing: Pippa was never supposed to be a heroine.

She was supposed to be a sweet side character in A Rogue By Any Other Name -- the odd younger sister who ends up married because that's what happens to odd younger sisters. And Cross was supposed to (get this!) marry a lady doctor. I had plans for him that involved neither ruination of engaged aristocratic misses nor falling head over heels for strange bespectacled beauties.

Not to mention the fact that Temple's book was supposed to come first.


I've never been one of those writers who has characters who speak to her. I am lord and deity over my books. I tell my heroes to do stuff and they do them, for heaven's sake. But...for some reason, for this book, I wasn't in charge. They were. To be more specific, Pippa was. She wanted her time in Cross's office and she wanted to know what she was missing out on, and she wanted...well...him. And she shocked me just as much as she shocked Cross, honestly.

Suffice to say, she may not be my favorite heroine...and he may not be my favorite hero...but together they are absolutely my favorite couple. And I cannot wait for you to meet them.
